This is what you should read to prepare for this week's lecture (Thu Nov 11) and the seminar 3 assignment (Mo Nov 15 - Tue Nov 16):
- Benkler (2006), "Emergence of the Networked Public Sphere" (chapter 7 in Benkler (2006), "The wealth of networks"). While the whole chapter is of interest, the lecture and the seminar assignment will primarily treat the second half of the chapter, i.e. pp. 241-272.
- Ramos (200X), "Linked: The new science of networks" (a really good, short and concentrated introduction to network theory in the form of a review of the book "Linked" by Barabási (2002)).
- Shirky (2003), "Power laws, Weblogs and Inequality".
Don't forget that we have a second (guest) lecture on Friday.
